Upon arrival(which restaurant was empty)wait staff was dressed rather casual in no particular fashion just all black, velvet sofas looked dirty and old. They had better view then the dining tables? We ordered the crab cakes suggested by our waitress, We received green and red pepper cakes with a bit of crab that was not even fresh. Absolutely no hint of crab flavor. We did not order steak since they had only 2 options- Our entrees mussels with linguini and my husband had clams. The mussels arrived in a swimming pool of red sauce and they were all bad. So bad manager advised they were being removed from menu for dinner-The chef did not know this before hand..SCARY. My husband's clam dish also not fresh. Really this is the Jersey shore! I ended up with a plate of lettuce for my meal since my husband was finished his and my appetite was depleting. We never saw the manager again. We ordered coffee and could not believe it was served ICE COLD! Again, the waitress could not tell this? So we searched her down again, mind you we were one of three tables in the restaurant eating on a Saturday eve in the summer. We went after reading other reviews not sure where they ate but our experience was terrible.

This was once our favorite restaurant not only because of the fantastic views but because they once had live music (jazz/blues) duos and trios which made this destination different amongst the sea of other young techno club like dining stops in every casino.

The best news was the food (filet/truffle Mac and Cheese) hadn't changed but you can't get hollandaise sauce any longer which was a nice perk at the once steak house.

The place used to have a wait and people lining the bar area but they've lost their older crowd to hopefully gain a younger group who are looking for a DJ spinning while they dine. Personally we really enjoyed the live music and vibe of the yesteryear - o well. Maybe they'll see they had a great thing and management made a bad call.

Good luck and if you change your heart and go back to live music (you can even keep the new menu!) but please get rid of the DJ music.

Chelsea Prime has been transformed into Fifth Floor, new chef, new menu, new decor, same great view of the ocean from every table. This is the ultimate sleeper in a town built around gaudy casino amenities, terrific food, skillfully prepared by a talented young chef, offered at modest prices. We were happy with everything we tried, the crab cakes, the chicken, the tuna and the salmon. The wine list needs work, but the current offerings are fairly priced.

Away from the casinos. Attached to a great hotel. Great atmosphere. Great food. Great entertainment. I was just there again, but the place is closed for renovations. I was bummed.

We are locals in AC, so we have tried every restaurant there. Chelsea Prime is our hands-down favorite. If you like steaks, this is the place to go! The steak is cooked to perfection and the sides are just delicious. You must try the truffled mashed potatoes! It's also a great spot for night-life, so you can park your car once and stay after dinner. It will not disappoint!
